Talking Headways Podcast: Measuring Carbon Emissions at Street Level
Dr. Kevin Gurney is a carbon cycle scientist at Arizona State University. I recently came across an article in Nature about his work measuring carbon emissions from mobile sources at street level, and I wanted to find out more.
On the podcast, I asked Dr. Gurney why cities are important to climate change, and why political boundaries make it difficult to collect data. And we discussed why measuring emissions matters not only for climate change, but also policy arenas like transportation planning and housing.
Dr. Gurney also peers into his crystal ball to assess whether we’ll have the tools to detect something like the Volkswagen emissions scandal in the future.
Join us for a fun discussion about cities, emissions, and data collection at the street, the block, and the city level.
